EC Fans & Drives Raises the Bar for Residential Ventilation

[New Bedford MA] EC Fans & Drives, a division of Epec Engineered Technologies, has recently launched its new EXR series of high efficiency, electronically commutated motors. Early indications are that the EXR series motor has comprehensively rewritten the benchmark for energy efficient residential ventilation.

The Energy Star requirements for efficient residential ventilation systems currently demand that a residential ventilation fan moves at least 2.8 cubic feet pet meter of air per Watt of electrical energy consumed by the fan. If that minimum standard is not achieved, a residential ventilation product will not be awarded the Energy Star mark of approval.

Independent testing on a residential ventilation system fitted with EC Fans & Drives' new EXR50 electric motor indicated that the EXR50 powered system was in fact exceeding the Energy Star minimum airflow per Watt of energy requirement by more than 500%.

Simon Gidney, President of EC Fans & Drives, commented, "We are extremely excited about the launch of our EXR Series motor. At a time when manufacturers and consumers alike are striving to lower running costs and protect the planet by driving down energy use, we believe that the EXR motor represents a major step forward in energy efficient residential ventilation."

EC Fans & Drives is among the leaders in Electronically Commutated (EC) technology and has developed a comprehensive range of energy efficient electric motors, fans and backward curved impellers that serve a wide range of applications across a broad cross section of industries.

With their technically advanced range of high performance, high efficiency motors and fans offer a 21st Century solution to companies seeking a high performance yet high efficiency capability, combining full functionality, variable speed control, and best in class power consumption for all customer applications.
